The Strategic Advisors Group (SAG) is a standing body of roughly forty senior experts on NATO and transatlantic security issues from across North America and Europe that provides timely, relevant insights and analysis to policymakers and the public on strategic issues in the transatlantic security relationship.
Founded in 2007 by then-Atlantic Council Chairman General James L. Jones, Brent Scowcroft, and former Norwegian Minister of Defense Kristin Krohn Devold, the SAG has established itself as the pre-eminent institution for strategic thinking and analysis on Euro-Atlantic security through its thought leadership on critical issues such as Afghanistan/Pakistan, the NATO Strategic Concept, and NATO reform. Currently chaired by EADS CEO Tom Enders, the SAG produces major public policy briefs and reports, hosts off-the-record strategy sessions for senior US and European civilian and military officials, and provides informal, expert advice to senior policymakers.
The SAG and its activities are generously sponsored by the Scowcroft Group and EADS North America.
